Wed, 9 Jan 2013|
The CTL panel discuss the Bears head coaching search and Mike Singletary's name being tossed around, whether that's a good thing or not - 1/9
Let's talk about first -- power. He threw this out there in New York Newsday caught on the up to a -- CVS event kind of sloppy how would you coach again I will definitely coach again yes. But men. You know immediately Roy got excited really but apparently a number of teams have inquired this year. Would you come back now for the right offer and he's now saying it's down the road. Well how much further down the road. Is it going to be he wouldn't consider boat covers aids like Florio pointed out I think that served a big question it's going to have to be a situation. That's perfect Jon Gruden is looking for the perfect situation. As she clearly hasn't found it because we haven't seen him jump back -- when you talk about perfect situation you get a lot of factors and quite. Number one ownership number two of the GM set up for the control with the coach would have and then number three. It's going to be the quarterbacks of these are coaches that are gonna won in a -- one of jump into a situation. With the quarterback that they believe they can win with -- -- a big way. If he wants to get back in it he should. Doing now. Otherwise. You know the longer you wait the more unpredictable of what we perfect it and there's blood per nothing's gonna be perfect to wait for perfect -- you're doing forever while on the road for the right situation and know them if -- better than the -- what -- the Bears if you look and secondary coach and quarterback. Well I mean if he is a very telling if -- what Florio said about the giants' job and replacing this. It replaces Tom Coughlin and is is on. In a possibility. Listen to follow on a guy who's done a terrific work with your Giants you don't know how much look who's gonna do it. But geoghan inherited great quarterback -- -- -- -- you don't think -- one of those guys that looks at talent potential. Like any coach Howard had -- ripped Cutler. Multiple times he has been currents TBS but it did you think he feels like he could fix them. -- -- I -- not Obama can't make stay composed do I want no part of that -- butler's defense coach yeah. Okay I it's not a perfect such might have Phil Emery has interviewed -- -- talking to thirteen. So far. And maybe there's not open Eddie -- and there's got to be more that we don't know anything about one of those is Mike Singletary. And you wrote a column. That I would happen to read last night as I'm want to do I go online Chicago -- and got crazy contacted me human yeah you would you read it last night in Chicago Tribune dot com debt payment weeded out and didn't created it. And I thought. It was one of the most ridiculous how have you ever that had I know you thought Fella or why it's it's so ridiculous for the Bears to interview eight. A hall of Famer. Being one of the great leaders have to -- McClain playing credentials have to do with Coca-Cola low so we let us finish the guys if they let -- finish big in the hole sixteen or eighteen and 22 Maine and because he was supposedly in embarrassment when he left the franchise in -- sisco. Monty should forty niners have done since he lust yeah I noticed Vernon Davis after he ripped them at -- off the bench became a pro -- Not -- Mike Singletary Mike Singletary bill Vernon Davis. Hope. All I'm telling you is. If -- of a coach struggles in one job it does it mean that he can't do the job in the next one Mike Singletary was basically demoted by the Vikings this past season from linebackers coach. To assistant head coach whatever. Duties error -- entailed. With that position. The Vikings linebackers don't wanna play for Mike Singletary. Mike Singletary was a point -- act as the coach of the forty -- it's listen I don't think is this three or four hour. Appointment with my series -- derail Phil -- from his -- fight in the next head coach of the Chicago Bears but it's a waste of time. Mike Singletary and I'll always an -- -- You -- you tell me don't Hillary usually content with the -- why do you get more animated. Obviously. Any coach that had struggled mightily in their first job let me -- -- there -- no one's. Ever regarded this guy. Is an x.s and -- on hold out at that position car has made a particular head coaching candidate. Not for the mayor job he's not head coach pulled out did you did you wanna get boo -- the fourth face flag in the background while you do this yeah I well OK I don't have the lenders for -- everybody I've talked to blow Hillary get the records of a particular got. Six and 107. And 97. And nine. Eleven at 55. And eleven that was. This particular Philadelphia that's Bill Belichick is that is exactly what is again good luck for him to listen to me less -- signed articles when they fired -- -- I can't communicating to jolt he's an embarrassment out of there. He's our greatest coach I know one stop them how to respect for an in your friend but. You cannot possibly sit there. And -- expect this with a straight -- To hear you compare -- I'm. I think notes the bill ballots not comparing it just didn't know I didn't almighty to let you got your column today said. Mike Singletary 1842 that I -- hey you can't -- note might keep battling one another -- Belichick did. Did highly regarded work with the defense is of the New York Giants. Mike Singletary. Was one of the greatest defensive players. Of his era yeah I -- a hall of Famer yet with. With unbelievable skills impeccable character -- went beyond the field in terms of leadership in the locker room. All those things that the classy guy off the field. None of that translates into being a successful head who cares who will want to spend four hours maybe people. Doug had a problem and I think -- represented as as expressed himself very well and represented the point very well. But here's the thing that I think is if you keep reminding my relative number one. Mike Singletary -- can -- look at -- gain out of an interview with him you might find it very rewarding might find a really good experience but. Is inconsistent. With what he identified as what he's looking for the -- with excellence -- -- which is excellent with just hold on let me finish here he said he was looking for a guy. That all the things that you described was. Were you looking for a thinker and our administrative and organizational skills do you think the Mike Singletary is not known for the coaching profession I'm sorry. Secondly it also implies that there's some -- going not. That Phil -- the guy who had the ability autonomy to fire Lovie Smith. Might be doing this because he's been influenced by ownership for the McCaskey. To say you know what this is the Bears legend sit down with them. This call Mike Singletary anything but the truth OK in the truth is. He doesn't have a shot at being the next head coach he wouldn't be a good choice in this to be a situation that you know he'd be better off. Still being a legendary figure because he comes here to coach the Bears it's not gonna and well.
